E320 Coupe - Widebody Conversion

After a few months of research & a lot of discussion with Motorwerks, my wide body conversion has now officially been started.

The E500E fenders arrived last week & have been test fitted. The rear arches will also be enhanced & fabricated out of steel - all inner wells will be properly finished & lined. I also have the Gen II AMG front bumper, which will be manipulated to fit the wider front end, along with all necessary lower cladding. The car will also receive a full repaint in their booth. Lastly, I have a few new interior pieces & a beautiful set of Carlsson 2/6 wheels - 18x8.5 & 18x10 to fill the new body nicely.

I have every confidence that the end result will appear as though it rolled off the factory floor. Until then, the dust on the car is killing me....

I will use this thread to show progress over the next few weeks (hopefully not months..).

holy scheisse.

Well, judging by your good taste, I'm gonna bet that this will look gorgeous. It's just hard for me to look at some previous pictures of your car and think that it could look any better!

Please do keep us updated! I have officially subscribed to this thread!
